Sonar is a proud member of the Linux Foundation, an organization committed to helping companies and developers identify and contribute to the projects that matter, providing a neutral, trusted hub for developers to code, manage, and scale open technology projects.
Recently, Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin sat down with Sonar Founder and co-CEO Olivier Gaudin to discuss Clean Code, open source development, and genAI! Listen to their sentiments on these trending topics below, and you can find more information about the Linux Foundation in the Q&A at the end.
Jim and Olivier discuss the importance of bringing awareness to the free access of high-quality tools and getting the word out about Sonar's Clean Code solution in the open source community. Olivier highlights how focusing on education and tooling are key factors in this collaborative approach.
Organizations typically change 20% of existing code every year. As complexity grows and software continues to evolve, developers inevitably touch existing code to make new changes. By adopting Sonar’s Clean as You Code approach, developers are able to focus on developing Clean Code and reduce technical debt as it establishes a standard expectation across the organization for all new code — added or changed.
The growing popularity of genAI has brought many benefits to developers, greatly increasing productivity for users everywhere. However, Olivier brings up the potential risks junior developers may face in relying too much on AI-generated code, and why having code review tools is essential in avoiding common pitfalls.
